My Passion: I am passionate about sports; playing them, (not as often or as well as I used to) watching them, and fantasy sports. I love competing and fighting for a common goal (winning). I think that translates well in our business. I enjoy the challenges of doing our job at such a high level that makes us the preferred choice when partners are making decisions on who they want to partner with in our region.
My Role: As operations manager I oversee the processes and procedures of running our business.

Speed and defect free services are vital in our industry and is what makes Allied Group the partner of choice in our region. I have a degree in secondary education and 25 years of industry experience, this combined with a passion to accept challenges has prepared me for this leadership role in Allied’s organization.
Career Background: I have been in the electrical industry since 1993, when I began my career as a warehouseman at a local independent electrical distributor. Since then I have worked in numerous roles of increasing responsibility including counter sales, purchasing, operations manager, branch manager and ultimately VP of Operations.
